Why is Occupy The Internet now an “exhibition of leading net artists”? Launched two weeks ago at fffff.at, the original project was a simple call: embed a script that runs an army of animated gif protesters on your website to show your support for the Occupation movement. The post asked for animated GIF submissions that would then be “called up for duty”, and has since been installed on over 875 websites.
Now, all those submissions are being replaced with GIFs by artists curator Evan Roth deems worthy of special consideration. This is beyond insulting.
